Safety Warning

We got this warning over email:

A Swiss skydiver was found to have gotten onto an aeroplane without his legstraps attached to his body. He had recently ordered a TonySuit SBird and was jumping said SBird at Skydive Elsinore. He boarded the plane and rode to altitude. It wasn't until the plane reached 10,000' that the error was caught out. Skydive Elsinore has a policy in place that requires all Wingsuiters to have gear checks


Remember people, do gear checks! Check legstraps!
One fatal accident related to this issue is already more than we would have ever needed.

Go Fast Wing Suit Festival in Hungary?

We usually keep our comments to ourselves, this being a small community and all, but I think it's time we voiced our opinions a bit more, and for starters let me just say I'm glad I wasn't at this year's Go Fast Wingsuit Festival in Hungary, cause it looks pretty damn lonely.

Posted by Go Fast itself on Vimeo:



Sometimes there are things you shouldn't post to the web... ;) What do you guys think?

MessyFly Wingsuit Team flight over the Eiger

Marco Luigi Regina of team MessyFly takes along a camera on a beautiful jump over the Swiss Eiger mountain.

V4 test jump with GPS data

Ludovic Woerth posted this video of his BASE jump with the new V4, including GPS data converted with my old GPX2SRT script.

He gets some insane glide ratio's and forward speeds along the way, very very cool!

Flock & Dock 7.0 Videos

Jarno's at Flock & Dock 7.0, but he's been oddly quiet online. I guess he's just having too much fun.

In any case, some video's have been posted of the event, so for your viewing pleasure:



The second video features a flying 'vag' formation with 'penetrators'. Yes, safe for work, I promise... as long as your boss is ok with you watching wingsuit video's at work (during lunch of course!)



This last video features some pretty cool footage shot from the ground of a big 2 plane formation, looking like an inverted delta at the lead with 2 long v's trailing. Nice!

Joby Ogwyn flies next to Mt. Everest

According to this press release, Joby Ogwyn, whom we've featured before here and here has become the first person to fly next to Mount Everest.

He exited the plane at 29,000ft, which has been done before, but then had to land his BASE canopy at 17,000ft, which is less common. :) He also has a nasty twist on opening, looking at the trailer.

Read the article here and watch the trailer to his upcoming movie 'Higher', about the Mt. Everest adventure, below.




You can follow Joby's adventures on his blog here and on Facebook here.

Michael Bay on the new Transformers movie

Comingsoon.net, a movie website, has an interview with Michael Bay, the director of the upcoming Transformers movies, where they mention the wingsuit jumps they did over Chicago for the movie:



And--as with the robot action--Bay is pushing the boundaries of what he has done. "We've got these wing suit guys. You see them on 60 Minutes jumping off the cliffs? I'm writing a scene for those guys," Bay laughs. For those wondering what he's talking about, you may have spotted the wing suits in a previously-released teaser trailer. "We have this great scene where they fly between these buildings. We had to block off a mile and a half of Chicago's streets and they jump off of the Sears Tower and fly between the buildings. That's unheard of.


Check out the article here


Administrative note: Jarno is in Florida at the moment, at the Flock & Dock. I'm trying to keep you guys up to date with some articles we hadn't posted yet. He'll be back next week and get ya'll up to date on the latest videos.

SSX renamed

From the 'only very slightly wingsuit related' department: Snowboard game SSX Deadly Descents has been renamed to just 'SSX' and will apparently not be so deadly.

I'll be curious to see if the wingsuit bit is any good. In the meantime we can keep bugging our resident wingsuit game programmer Martijn Zandvliet to release a beta, heck even an alpha would be fun!

A bunch of game news sites carry the story on SSX rename:

Australian women's wingsuit record attempt

More wingsuit news from Australia, this time from the Sunshine Coast Daily, about the 2011 Skysisters Convention at Toogoolawah later this month.


The Skysisters will challenging six all-female national and world records, including the impressive eight-way wingsuit world record with a 10-way of jumpers in multicoloured webbed “wingsuit” outfits joining in perfect formation.
If anyone is attending, please send us the wingsuit pics, we'll post them!

Learning To Fly



Elias and Werner both had some fun giving the Venom a first try, and some of the pre-production models I got on loan from the factory. Also learning to fly the suit myself, it took a bit of getting used to the steering and amount of lift in the suit (Im mostly flying a PF Shadow, on the way other end of the spectrum of agility and speed).

Expect a lot more footage the coming weeks (including BASE), flying the suit at full speed instead of the easy flocking pace you see here :)

Festo SmartBird - Bird flight deciphered

We where tempted to post stuff like "Wingsuit News will stop posting", "Wingsuit landing accomplished!", "USPA Grid working!" and "Wingsuit Flyers agree on things", but figuring everyone knows its April 1st (April Fools), we figured we'd rather show you something more fun and realistic! Enjoy!
